Black and white decor has become a traditional combination that can be both playful and elegant at the same time. Ok, so we know it might seem like we are all set on black and white decor inspiration, but honestly, we can’t get enough of them. The contrast between these two non-colors is the one that generates a certain tension in the design scheme, being able to be at the same time a perfect background for the main pieces of the decor or the focal point of the entire room. The more usage of black the more sober the atmosphere so be careful not to overdue it and create a claustrophobic chamber. Accents are of the most importance, whether colorful or with a specific design or texture because they are the ones that unite all the components and merge them into one solid creation.
White creates the sensation of openness and liberation. Thus it should be used in open spaces like open-kitchens and living rooms and even in the bedroom if you like a more serene clam atmosphere. In contrast the black, a grave, strong non color implies a more intimate, serious state of mind and it is suitable for the privacy of you bedroom or study. Nonetheless don’t feel obliged to not use it in the kitchen where combined with a steel furniture can turn it into an industrial designed room. Add touches of crystal and gold and choose rich textures and materials like silk and velvet, leather and transform your living room into a luxurious decadent space perfect for romantic evening or dinner parties. Just keep in mind to find that balance and to have fun with the design itself.
